The Mail [Apr. 4th, 2013|12:00 pm]
Tony Grist
No, I don't hate the Mail. If I said I did I'd be guilty of hypocrisy. I scan it every day (along with the Guardian, Independent and Telegraph). The web page has some good stuff- photo-galleries and the like. This morning, for instance, there's a excellent feature on the photography of The American Civil War.  If it employs the lamentable Richard Littlejohn it also has the eccentric, brave and wholly admirable Peter Hitchens.

Think of it as a mirror held up to the Ronnie Barker classes.

You jest, surely?

No, not at all. I admire his bloody-minded independence. You can like the cut of a man's jib without agreeing with everything he says.

And I would argue that whilst his opinions are seen as vile, Littlejohn has that bloody minded independence as well.

I don't like him so I don't read him, but you're probably right.

I do read him - because I like a bloody good laugh!
